I may be homeless, but I'm living a very comfortable life. U can read my topic about my homeless situation for more details. So when I refer 2 homeless people, I'm talking about people who have 2 eat off the ground, don't have good clothes, and have virtually no money. Here in Little Rock, Arkansas a plan has been made to use a building in a east side neighborhood into a place for homeless people 2 get some resources. This is something I read in our newspaper. Now an old building that use 2 be a Job Corp building is not currently being used. The building is very tall, and it has a lot of rooms and space. There is a plan for the city 2 turn into a place 2 help out the homeless. Now its not really going 2 be a homeless shelter, I believe its just going 2 be a place for homeless people 2 come get a meal, some clothes, take a shower and stuff like that. The problem is that some people in the neighborhood ain't pleased with this because they don't won't homeless people in their neighborhood. They feel that the building will attract too many homeless people and some of them may want 2 drift around the neighborhood. They don't feel its safe for them and their children because some homeless people deal with issues like stealing and mental illness. The residents also feel that the place will eventually turn into an overnight shelter, which could mean that even more homeless people will be around the neighborhood. Well, the residents kind of make sense, but I just don't feel that we should just say fuck the homeless. Some homeless people are homeless because they truly just have bad fortune in life and can't find a good job. I'm sure that some homeless people have a job, but if u only make $6 an hour and only work 16 hours week, u can't afford a home. If people don't want the homeless around the neighborhoods, maybe the city government should construct a building in the outskirts of the city in a somewhat rural area. Then the city could use a bus to load up the homeless, take them 2 the building, and once everything is done for the day; load up the homeless again and take them back 2 the city and drop them off around the business districts so they can have a proper ally 2 sleep in. Or they could take however many homeless people they can 2 a shelter. I would say that the government should just give every homeless person a dorm room of their own with free electricity and give them a $100 welfare check every week but in this world, such a good idea will only remain a fantasy. What do u guys think? I know some of u are from Philadelphia, New York, California, Florida, London, Asia and other places where homelessness is a much more serious issue than it is here in Little Rock. How do the city governments deal with homeless people in your city such as welfare checks, shelters and other types of assistance?
